The Armed Forces of the Philippines has launched “precise” air strikes in three barangays (villages) in Marawi City as fighting with the remaining members of the IS-linked Maute Group went on the third day.

AFP's Spokesperson Lt. Col. Jo-ar Herrera reported the attacks as "very deliberate, very precise" bombs were fired in the Barangays of Gadongan, Basak Malutlut, and Bangol to get rid of the remaining members of the terrorist group.

"Yung ginagawa natin, napaka-precise. Gumagamit tayo ng surgical air strikes" Lt. Col Herrera said.

"We are conducting clearing operations in three barangays we have sightings of the remnants of the local terrorist group. They are still here but we are flushing them out. We are flushing them out,” Lt. Col. Herrera told the reporters.

According to Lt. Col. Jo-ar Herrera, it is confirmed that the leader of the Abu Sayyaf terror group and also known as the head of Islamic State in the country stayed in Marawi City. The information was based on residents of the communities who reported sighting the terrorist which is why his group still remains in the city.

The fighting started on Tuesday afternoon after the government forces conducted a raid on the safehouse of Isnilon Hapilon, a top leader of the Abu Sayyaf based in Basilan and also believed to be a leader of the Islamic State in Southeast Asia. The terrorists torched facilities, took over parts of the city, and took hostages as the gunbattle erupted.
